Smooth Jazz get ready to embrace your next star… VIP, Jonathan Fritzén’s follow up album to his debut LOVE BIRDS, is a solid smash! According to the 26-year-old Swedish pianist, “VIP has a groovier, deeper urban sound, while keeping the elegance I aimed for on my first album.” Couldn’t agree more! Jonathan covers eight different instruments on VIP, this time ‘round he’s recruited some assistance. Guests include NuGroove artists, guitarist Jay Soto and saxophonist Michael Lington, Swedish artists Laila Adéle and Greger Hillman, and some of Sweden’s top studio musicians. Jonathan also brought in Ollie Olsson for mixing (Snoop Dogg, Robyn) and Björn Engelmann for mastering (Backstreet Boys, Cardigans). This recording is one of the most exciting new Smooth Jazz releases I’ve heard all year, maybe even last year, and I’m thrilled to tell you that this incredible talent grew up listening to Radio in Sweden and now is in fact, one of our brightest stars. VIP is filled with 11 sizzling hot tunes that will fill your world with groove and joy! It is a Very Important Project! ~SANDY SHORE –
